JOMBA! GRANTS FROM FNB VITA (article first published : 2000-04-1)

FNB Vita, organisers of the FNB Vita Awards, recently announced that after six years at The Playhouse, they would no longer present the FNB Vita Dance Shongololo but will join forces with the Centre for Creative Arts' JOMBA! Festival which takes place in August.

The partnership will include the commissioning of six young Durban-based choreographers to premiere a new work on a programme called New Moves as well as two FNB Vita Choreographers Grants for the more established choreographers to also present their works during the festival.

The six young choreographers who were commissioned for the New Moves programme are Ntombi Gasa, Garth Naudé, Thulebona Mzizi, Quinton Ribbonaar, Eric Shabalala and Claire Bezuidenhout. An added bonus to the commission is that three "mentors", David Gouldie, Jay Pather and Lliane Loots, will act as facilitators during their creative process. One of the choreographers will be selected to be given financial assistance towards premiering a new work at JOMBA 2001.

The two recipients of the FNB Vita Choreographers 2000 Grants are Jay Pather from Siwela Sonke Dance Company and Boyzie Cekwana from The Floating Outfit Project.
